Remote Supplier Audit

Remote Supplier Audit focusses on general, but vitally important aspects of a manufacturer for the supplier selection process. It includes aspects like contacting the factory by phone or e-mail and reviewing samples manufactured by the factory. Factory Audits by GQC are a cost- and time-effective way to prepare a complete profile of your potential supplier, ensuring they will become a reliable part of your global supply chain.  

On-site Supplier Audit

On-site Supplier Audit provides a more in-depth evaluation of the factory’s quality system, management techniques, equipment maintenance and document control. During an on-site factory audit, the auditor will travel to the factory. Upon arrival, the auditor will collect information about the factory and work through a checklist of items that the factory should comply with. By far, the most widely used standard to evaluate a Chinese manufacturer’s Quality Management System is ISO9001. GQC’s auditors checks all manufacturers against this standard, which allows our customers to understand clearly the strengths and weaknesses of the manufacturer.
